No big surprise really. "They" said it was coming... I didn't wanna believe "them".
I should've know better. Instead, I left the hose out. The corners of the wood pile uncovered. The shovels in the shed... far away from the front door. The snow blower..... no gas. "They" warned me not to do that, but I did it anyway.
When I shut the lights off Monday night and to get some sleep, it was already snowing. The forecast of 4-6 in town and 10" + up high. "They've" been wrong before and I was hoping "they" would be wrong again. As I awoke Tuesday morning, I realized I owed "them" an apology. "They" had hit it perfectly. Actually, "they" were a little off as the reports came in of 16" of the white stuff up high.
We're in that period of seasons where you either get out the rock skis or load the bikes and head down the hill to quench your thirst for single-tracks. Until "they" say it's gonna snow again, I'll see you on the trails.
